About Trillium Ceremonies

Colorado Humanist Wedding Celebrant

Based in north Denver Metro Colorado, I craft and officiate personalized secular (non-religious) marriage and commitment ceremonies. Whether you are looking for something short and sweet or a longer and more elaborate ceremony, we'll work together to write a ceremony that captures your views on love, marriage, friendship, and family.

I proudly officiate weddings for couples of all gender identities and sexual orientations, and am most comfortable working with couples who view marriage as a partnership between equals.

A recent client said-

"We consider ourselves so lucky to have found Melissa! We were looking for an officiant who would help us create a wedding ceremony unique to us and Melissa more than delivered... She listed to all our rambling thoughts and offered organized, open-minded and nonjudgmental options for us to consider... It was clear, her only agenda was to help us make our ceremony exactly what we wanted."

Ceremony fees are typically $350 (see example contract). I also write ceremonies for couples who have a special someone to actually officiate the wedding (contact me for rates). Helping couples create a personal and memorable ceremony is my priority; no two ceremonies will ever be the same, whether it is just the couple and I or 200 guests. Since October 2011, I have happily officiated more than 70 weddings.

I am endorsed as a Humanist Celebrant by the Humanist Society (a non-profit corporation of the American Humanist Association) through a process equivalent to that of ordination in a traditional religious body.

    Perfect Ceremony on our Perfect Day

    The first thing we tell people about our day is how perfect our ceremony was. What Melissa put together for us really captured who we are and who we hope to be together. It was reassuring to know that we had her as resource as we were writing our vows.
    As virtual wedding guests are a common occurrence now I wanted to point out that even virtually our guests were able to feel like part of the ceremony. Melissa wore a classy grey suit paired with a matching mask which very nicely blended right into the scene unnoticeably. I'm so grateful that Melissa was available to offer us the secular alternative that we needed!

    Mr & Mrs Kelley

    Melissa was simply great. From initial contact to the day of our wedding she was so informative and professional. Having a beautiful secular wedding was a must, Melissa made it perfection. Our wedding was out of town on a holiday, she had no problem with that and was on time and made it eveything we wanted. Would recommend her sevices to any couple wanting an amazing ceremony and officiant! Thanks again!

    Best. Officiant. Ever!

    Melissa and Trillium Ceremonies were more than we could have ever hoped for in an officiant. It is very clear that she does this not for profit, but simply out of her belief in true love and the beauty of marriage. When I spoke with Melissa on the phone, I had already scheduled two appointments to meet with other officiants. As soon as I hung up the phone, I immediately cancelled the appointments as we knew that Melissa was everything we wanted. Throughout the process of writing the ceremony, Melissa was extremely helpful and responsive. She wrote a beautiful, simple ceremony that was exactly what we were looking for, including lots of ideas and suggestions. On the day of our wedding, Melissa delivered the ceremony so beautifully and personally that a couple of guests asked why she didn't stay for the reception, assuming that she was a close family friend. Trust me, you will get more than your money's worth if you chose to work with her. Thank you, Melissa!!!
